There will be 1-2 more WTA 125s in China next year or in 2014, not sure which year she actually said.

Also, YEC candidates in the other thread.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

I think WTA should move all its offices to China so they can save money for instant travelling there.

WTA is going to lose so much traction in the next couple of years. Vital deals with Sony and Eurosport gone, loads of casual watchers will be gone with them too. And coverage will move to some irrelevant channel/on-line paid subscription thing.

Also doubles will be 8 teams from 2014 on for YEC... so maybe more than 6-7 days worth of YEC.

No more Eurosport, no more Sony.

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Not unexpected but still it's sad that today will mark the end of the WTA/ES era. 14 years of tennis on ES. Perhaps ES will pick up some of the smaller tournaments next year. Unless they can put together a proper schedule of tennis it won't receive any priority scheduling wise. The grand slam coverage on ES for the last years favored the ATP matches.

In the presentation it was mentioned that there will be increased coverage next year, multiple courts at bigger events etc. Sadly this will be on subscription channels and tennistv.com. Looking at the tennistv.com schedule only the international events will be available here in the Netherlands. Hopefully it's not a sign of things to come, sport1 will show the tournament of champions next week. But only the semi finals and final.

2014 YEC in Kazan, Mexico City, Singapore or Tianjin.

WTA champs will have a longer week, starting on Monday and 8 doubles teams (round robin).

Premier tournaments will have at least 2 TV courts.

WTA will continue to expand in Asia Pacific region, especially in China. They want to have 2 WTA 125 events in China next year.
